Pet Skin Allergies (Dogs)

The best control comes from feeding animals a diet that does not contain synthetic toxic preservatives. 

Comfrey tea can be use topically for dog skin allergies -  cook a mess of comfrey greens, dilute the cool pot liquor down to a light iced tea color and pour the into the dog’s fur. Comfrey is very powerful so don’t use more than once a month and only when needed.
Bathing the dogs in herbal shampoos that contain citrus (d-limonene) and tea tree (melaleuca) will also help. Cornmeal dusted onto problem skin areas is also helpful, especially if the skin problems are fungal. See cornmeal for additional information.
